Welcome back? We certainly hope so! The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) will be hosting its 74th Annual Awards Luncheon on October 21 in the main ballroom at the Irving Convention Center, our first in-person event since 2019.

Tables and tickets are now available! Please note this year for safety reasons tables will only seat eight people. You can find tables and tickets here.

Sponsorships are also available, providing your hospital or company an opportunity to share your support of this year’s recipients or the opportunity to have your name in lights.

Hospital Sponsorships can be found here.

Non-hospital Executive Sponsorships can be found here.

Recipients of this year’s awards include:

    • Distinguished Health Service Award, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson;
    • Young Healthcare Executive of the Year, Patrick Brown, vice president of operations at Methodist Charlton Medical Center;
    • Kerney Laday, Sr. Trustee of the Year, Dorothy DeBose, chair of the board of managers at JPS Health Network.

Jessica Long, one of America’s most decorated Paralympic champions, will serve as keynote speaker. The daughter of unwed teenagers, Jessica was born in Siberia and placed for adoption at 13 months old. Jessica’s legs were amputated below the knee due to a rare bone disorder. She was adopted by American parents to eventually become one of the most decorated athletes in U.S. history. Jessica’s life served as the inspiration of the famous 2021 Super Bowl commercial highlighting her deep connections to her family. The commercial can be viewed here.

The Luncheon is sponsored in part by Hall Render and Forvis.

We hope to see you at an event attracting more than 800 attendees united in the belief that better health makes a better community!
